Date lodged: 22 March 2017
To ask the Scottish Government how many vacancies there are for independent prison monitors.

The optimum number of independent prison monitors is dependent on the experience and availability of IPMs in each prison which can vary significantly. There is therefore no set quota by which to measure vacancies.
